Ok, I'd not write about properties of figures but the reader's satisfaction is more important.

We can manipulate any property of the graphs in Scilab as following:

--> set("figure_style","new"); //create a figure in entity mode

-->f = get("current_figure")

f =

Handle of type "Figure" with properties:

========================================

children: "Axes"

figure_style = "new"

figure_position = [655,473]

figure_size = [610,461]

axes_size = [596,397]

auto_resize = "on"

figure_name = "Scilab Graphic (%d)"

figure_id = 0

color_map= matrix 32x3

pixmap = "off"

pixel_drawing_mode = "copy"

immediate_drawing = "on"

background = -2

visible = "on"

rotation_style = "unary"

user_data = []

--> a = f.children // the handle on the Axes child

Now, let's set the desired color:

--> a.foreground = 5;

And we can make the graph:

--> x = [1:10]';

--> y = [1:10]';

--> [vx vy] = meshgrid(x, y);

--> champ(x, y, vx, vy, 1);

The result is:

But, we want more! Let's continue the script as following:

--> a.foreground = 3;

--> x = 10 + [1:10]';

--> y = 10 + [1:10]';

--> [vx vy] = meshgrid(x, y);

--> champ(x, y, vx, vy, 1);

The result is:

The foreground element, called in

--> a.foreground = n; // n is a number that represents the desired color

may be any of these values:

- 1 - black
- 2 - blue
- 3 - green
- 4 - cyan
- 5 - red
- 6 - magenta
- 7 - yellow
- 8 - white
- 9 - dark blue

Scilab can make graphs with more colors (for the numbers higher or equal than 10), but you are smart for test it.

If you want a black bound (look that the made graphs, the bound's color is the same of the vectors) you have to put the command

--> a.foreground = 1;

after the champ(.) function:

That's all, now the unknown reader can plot vectors with colors.
